Volume : 700ml , ABV : 43.2%
Rich and beautifully balanced, deep and aromatic, and infused with a delicate sweetness, this truly exceptional whisky is the product of just 5 refill casks originally laid down before 1979. These casks were brought together in 2008 and filled into first-fill sherry seasoned American oak casks to intensify the flavour over a further 10 years of maturation.
Orkney’s unforgiving climate pairs well with our unforgiving demand for the finest quality casks. The refill casks that originally held this whisky are ideal for a long, slow maturation imparting an oaky flavour which doesn’t dominate, while the first-fill sherry seasoned casks in which the whisky completed its maturation, bring a depth of character and nutty, fruit-filled notes of sherry to the flavour.
A very rare whisky for a very rare whisky connoisseur.
